Samantha Lambert

Trip Coordinator

Curious | Eager | Versatile

​​Samantha is an Ohio native who graduated from Bowling Green State University with a B.A. in Film & Telecommunications. She spent a semester abroad in Wales—where she truly found her passion for adventure and travel in its wild mountains and rugged coastlines. While exploring Europe, she learned so much about travel operations, which would eventually lead her to a career in the industry.

Samantha has a strong background in operations and has coordinated all her own adventures. She enjoys bringing together all the tiny trip details that make each Extraordinary Journey trip a bespoke and unforgettable experience. Whether it’s the infectious bustle of Nairobi or the cosmopolitan charm of Cape Town, she loves learning about different cultures, seeing the beautiful sights of a new destination, and trying delicious desserts along the way—baked feta with honey in Greece is currently her number 1.

Samantha is forever dreaming about her next adventure and always has at least one trip planned. With so many incredible places to see in the world, Samantha’s destination list never seems to stop growing, but the beauty of Africa never fails to amaze her, and she can’t wait to visit again soon to learn more about this diverse continent.

One of my favorite things to do while traveling is to seek out beautiful scenery. Whether it's a great mountain view, a colorful street in a foreign place, or a new ocean that I'm just experiencing for the first time. I love to find the beauty that I'm not normally exposed to.

My Greatest Adventure

Gorilla trekking in Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest has taken the cake as my greatest adventure. It was a long, steep trek on uneven ground, but the payoff was completely worth it. Getting to watch these amazing creatures interact up close in person was an experience I’ll never forget— a truly incredible, special moment.

My Favorite Destinations

Choosing just one is just too hard, as I’ve been fortunate enough to travel to so many amazing places. I really loved my recent trip to South Africa, as the country offers such a wide array of places that are so different from one another. I started at Cape Town, with its beautiful beaches, incredible mountain views, and contemporary dining scene, then went on to spend time at Sabi Sand and Timbavati, two amazing game reserves with some next-level wildlife viewing. Uganda will also always hold a special place in my heart, as it was my first safari and a totally new travel experience for me. Getting to trek with both gorillas and chimps my first time in Africa was an exhilarating experience that I don’t know if i’ll ever be able to beat.
